If it was recorded on video the sale of DVD's would probably rake in more $$

I'd be willing to contribute to fund a camera system that we can watch the goings on of the shop. To see these customers live would be great

Ha, the FCC would fine me for some of the curse language that gets said around the shop.

I suspect the fund would quickly get to a level such that Bob would sell the business and retire!

This situation seemed odd. Had a female customer come in stating she had two vehicles and needed a used tire on the one she was in currently ...but didn't know what all was wrong for a second vehicle still at her house as her low tire light was on for that vehicle. She said she would bring it up here after we fixed the first one and she would go park the first and drive the second back.

What was odd, is she wanted for us to get thru with the second vehicle before charging her card as she just wanted it to be one transaction for all of it.

This set off my fraudometer bells and I told her we could run them as two transactions as I'm the one who paid the fees to the bank.

She kinda rejected my answer and stated she would just leave her card with me while she went to get the second vehicle. Now my fraudometer siren is sounding. I'm thinking she is planning to leave me some kind of worthless piece of plastic and I'll never see her again.

I tell her she can't leave any card with us as it put an undue liability on us should any fraudulent activity show up on the card as it was out of her possession.

Now I can't decide if she was trying to steal from me or scam me.

I did get paid on completion of the first one as we had already finished with it as she was still trying to talk me into waiting for payment, but she never showed back up with the second vehicle.

What do ya think?

She also didn't look like the name on the card of a Richard M. Nixon......jk

I think you dodged a scammer. The odds of two tires on two cars? Being able to afford two cars, but not a new tire? There was even more, but just these mentioned are Too many red flags

Some people are making payments on two cars and can't afford much more. Especially when done paying for insurance and gas.

I donít dis agree, but that was just one of many red flags, and I think Bobby handled it the best he could under the circumstances

I think Bobby is a wise man whose business sense is spot on. Good lessons here among the humor and love stories (which are all the same sometimes.)
